For the time being, the Nintendo Switch has no apps that let interested individuals stream in a direct manner to Twitch and similar services. However, that hasn’t stopped interested individuals from doing so anyways through the use of external capture devices and other means. Fortunately for interested individuals, the Nintendo Switch has plenty of games that are worth streaming. Here are five Nintendo Switch games that are perfect for streaming on Twitch:
Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2
Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 aren’t the kind of games that one would expect to find on a Nintendo console. After all, Nintendo has a reputation for family-friendly games, which is something that has been built up over the course of years and years. However, ever since Nintendo made it possible for PlatinumGames to make Bayonetta 2, the series’s fate has been tied to that of the console maker. Regardless, Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 remain excellent choice for people who love hack and slash action, particularly if they have found other PlatinumGames titles to their liking. For that matter, considering that Bayonetta 3 is set to come out in the not too distant future, now is the perfect time to pick up the bundle containing both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 for the Nintendo Switch in preparation for their imminent follow-up.
One of Nintendo’s most interesting choices in recent times is its embrace of indie games, which has resulted in a torrent of them being released for the Nintendo Switch. One excellent example is Enter the Gungeon, which can be summed up as a bullet hell roguelike. As such, the title has a lot of replayability packed into it, which in turn, makes it an excellent choice for people who are thinking about streaming something on the Nintendo Switch.
Kirby Star Allies is an excellent installment in one of Nintendo’s leading franchises. In short, it is a 2.5D platformer, so it should come as no surprise to learn that it comes with a lot of very familiar elements from previous titles. For example, Kirby is still the lovable blob who can suck up enemies and steal their powers for his own use. Likewise, there are still spectacular encounters with huge bosses. With that said, Kirby Star Allies is also very distinctive as well, with an excellent example being how it lets Kirby bring a total of three companions. Naturally, some of these companions include famous figures from previous games in the Kirby series, thus making it that much more welcome for people who have been playing them since well before the latest release.
Splatoon was a very strong launch for what has become one of Nintendo’s more iconic franchises. Somehow, Splatoon 2 managed to be a step-up in that regard, retaining its predecessor’s sense of fun while making various improvements such as more modes as well as an even better selection of weapons. On the whole, for people who love shooters, Splatoon 2 is a pretty solid choice for streaming, particularly since it is so unusual that it is more than capable of distinguishing itself from its counterparts within no more than a few moments of gameplay.
Chances are good that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate won’t always remain the ultimate version of the crossover fighter, but for the time being, it certainly has a very good claim to it. After all, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes not just all all of the fighters from previous games but also includes a number of newcomers, which aren’t counting the additional fighters that are expected to be included in future DLC. Combined with further refinements of its formula as well as various other changes, it is either the best or one of the best installments in the series, thus making it well-worth playing by interested individuals. On top of this, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is perfect for multiplayer while remaining perfectly playable in single player mode, thus making it an even better choice for someone who is thinking about streaming their play experience on Twitch.
